BACK TO SEA
The return of shamanic rituals
These past years, the Moken - once knowned as the sea gypsies of Burma – seemed lost in the big turmoil of globalization. They had largely settled, gradually losing their traditions and idendity. Then, and somewhat mysteriously, shamanic rituals resumed after years of interruption and an increasing number of Moken took to the sea again, embracing the lifestyle of their ancestors.
This film aims to uncover this very peculiar people whose values are so unique.
